The other day I purchased a Taylor Made R11 15.5 degree 3 wood on E-bay. The serial number is TF10572. When I received the head it looked good. I called Taylor Made customer service in CA to verify the serial number and they told me they had no records of that numer or the seller being an authorized seller.
I contacted the seller and they told me Taylor Made has no clue what the Tour clubs serial numbers are and they buy all their clubs directly from Taylormade.
Do I have a fake club or is Taylor Made not able to verify the authenticity of one of their heads?
I purchased the head from E-Bayer seller "niblick-99"
